Teeny tiny 16 inch Genesis IO single speed hardtail, 26 inch wheel.  Happy to split parts if the price is right.

Highlights include; Middleburn Uno cranks and 32t chainring, White Industries bolt up single speed hub and 18t trials freewheel, Chris King headset, and Avid BB7 calipers and levers.

Other components; hope pro2 front hub, rims are nothing special but no issues, 760mm bars, 70mm stem, decent metal platform pedals (I’m not sure of the brand but they’re nearly as good as my superstar nanos), rear tyre is a high roller but pretty worn, front is a nobbly nic

I bought this a year ago with the idea of riding street during lockdown but it’s just taking up space and I’d rather ride a real mtb.

The bike is generally in very good condition, there’s only a few superficial paint chips on the frame.  Front and rear hub bearings changed recently, I’ve not touched the freewheel but they are pretty much indestructible so it will probably outlast the rest of the bike. The fairly worn tyres are the worst thing about this bike.

You might want to fit a longer seatpost because I chopped this one so I could get it right out the way.  There is a bodge on the front brake caliper as this one I picked up second hand was missing a cable stop, but this is sorted with tape and I haven’t noticed it being a problem, I’m honestly so surprised at how good these brakes are.  I’ll upload a close up of the bodge later.

I’m listing it as collection only for now but I might post if there’s no interest locally and I’m happy to split if you want to make an offer for some parts.
